(3) Through approved internal controls governing table fill and credit procedures;
(4) In exchange with patrons for gaming chips of equal value;
(5) In exchange for a verified automated tip receipt from a commission-approved automated table game controller; or
(6) In exchange with patrons for non-value chips on the roulette table.
